According to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N...system_of_Nuer ), letters Ɣ (capital) and ɣ (lesser case) are Nuer letters while ɤ (a vocalic sign of the International Phonetic Alphabet) isn't. Nonetheless, a number of the latest Nuer sentences here ( https://tatoeba.org/es/sentences/of_user/gatdet ) apparently contain ɤ instead Ɣ / ɣ.
Maybe a bot could change this if need would be?
I opened a ticket on GitHub: https://github.com/Tatoeba/tatoeba2/issues/2841
Thanks so much, TRANG! =)
Most of the additions of the new user PrasantaHembran ( https://tatoeba.org/es/sentence...rasantaHembram ) are Santali (code sat) but this language is not activated yet in Tatoeba. Could somebody do this? Thanks.
According to Github, Santali will be added next Sunday! See here: https://github.com/Tatoeba/tatoeba2/issues/2831
OK! Thanks! =)
This has actually been delayed a bit, to include another language (Berom) in the same update. It should be available this weekend :)

I made this for myself, and then thought some other members might be interested in this, so I'm posting it on the Wall.

This is something similar, but instead of by usernames, it's done by languages.
About native speakers of classical languages
Some languages are classical languages and therefore in theory there are no native speakers, but I don't rule out the possibility that some parents create a classical language context.
For example, Classical Chinese, which is not only a written language but also a classical language, I chose fluency level because I don't consider myself a native speaker, I learned it in school. But I still see users who use classical Chinese as their native language. Chinese schools will teach it, so some students may be able to reach native level.
In this case, the level chosen is at the native level, but can it be considered a true native language?
The answer really comes down to what you're trying to accomplish with the information. The purpose of the rating is to indicate people who are highly knowledgeable about a language and whose judgment can be trusted when making a decision about most sentences. Whether or not that equates to the degree of proficiency of speakers of a modern language who were raised speaking it in a variety of environments is not as important in this context.
Thanks! By the way, the page for adopting sentences says " adopt any orphan sentence you see in your native language", so is it possible to adopt sentences when the user has reached native language level but not really native speakers?
I think you could theoretically adopt sentences in any language, but that's not recommended
I think so too. I would like to adopt some classical Chinese sentences, but I am not really a native speaker, even though I have studied long enough in school before to reach that level. Classical Chinese is not commonly used in everyday life.
Yeah Classical Chinese is an interesting case as you described, because there still are technically some actual native speakers.
In my personal opinion I think you should be fine, as long as you’re fully sure and you check as needed
There aren't any native speakers of Classical Chinese. But there are people who have studied it and know it well, similar to Latin, Ancient Greek, Middle Egyptian, etc.
> so is it possible to adopt sentences when the user has reached native language level but not really native speakers?
If you have a sufficiently solid command of a constructed or "dead" language, you should indicate in your profile that you are a native speaker. And if you do that, you should be able to adopt sentences.
